I cannot say anything about how well it protects the engine but
I have seen no benefits in mileage.

Something really important would have to happen to convince me I should use this product forever. Hope I didn't ruin the engine but then, I did get the extended warranty

After reading such positive reviews, I placed the order for a 32oz bottle and applied to 2 of my cars: a 1998 Volvo and a 1994 Nissan Quest about 3-4 weeks ago. I added to the motor oil as well as transmission as indicated.

There was no changes to the performance or fuel savings, it was completely innefective.

The good news is that it didn't damage the cars.
Human beings are funny with things like this. I remember when my buddy called to tell me he was getting 250% better mileage with "Fuel Master" magnets zip tied to each side of the gas line on his Caravan. It "rearranges" the atoms in gas molecules for more efficiency. Only $39.95/set. On the next trip to Albany we actually measured LESS mileage than the same trip a week before. He also swears by additives but real world testing, at best, always shows no change.

I can't tell you how many guys I did bikes for pull into my driveway bragging about some upgrade (race carb, hi octane gas, synth oil, porting, hole drilled in carb, the list goes on). Needless to say reality comes a-callin' on "dyno hill".

I'm not saying it can't happen but would characterize it as unlikely based on previous experience.

The human mind is a funny thing. Sometimes outright hilarious.

I am very skeptical as well especially about something that sounds like snake oil...I think I mentioned somewhere the I had contacted my old boss with the Peterbuilt and he said he didn't notice any change in fuel economy. The problem with his truck is different drivers with very heavy loads his truck was wide open not governed a blast to drive! I would not recommend this stuf if I had not seen some sort of positive results myself. The second you pour this stuff in a 4 stroke engine you can hear the difference in a much quieter and less vibrating engine. Immediately after pouring a little in the spark plug hole and rocking the bike back and forth upon starting the engine I wasn't sure it had started it was so quiet...I am not exagerating even a little it sounded more like what it does prior to firing. The quart of this stuff is $26 delivered on Amazon. I might use $5 worth on my bike treating the engine once and the way I know this stuff bonds it will likely be the only treatment the bike gets ever. The only negative reports I had seen until you found those were from nay sayers who had never tried it. Norman said he was gonna try the stuff I'm very interested in his report. If this stuff did nothing more than quiet the engine the way I have heard it do it's worth it to be more stealthy. I also felt the vibration dissapate immediately hence less bolts comin loose ect. I was hoping for some negative reports to come in, any scientific test needs to be scrutinized to be of any worth. Here's another reason I bought my first quart of this stuff about 5 years ago: truckers open their wallet and moths fly out...them guys are cheaper than Scruge...for a trucker to spend almost $100 on this stuff speaks volumes. Here's the rest of the reviews on Amazon including the negative ones: Customer Reviews: MotorKote MK-HL32-06 32oz Hyper Lubricant
